Build it up week - Karen

One our second Build it up day, Karen chose to use one of the Tando Creative Layered layered frames: Rowing Boat with oars.
This is one of the Tando Creative kit that comes flat and you do have to build it up and alter as you wish. The sky is the limit, there is so much you can do with those. 

Starting with the base of the boat, I painted a sea/sky scene and added a stamped boat and waves. Then I glued all but the top section together and painted it in PaperArtsy Fresco Paint in Guacamole to match the stamped boat. Painted the insides before attaching and painting the top section and attaching this. I added a crackle look with a Craty Individuals stamp and some Brilliance ink in Pearlescent Thyme.

I then painted the oars with the Fresco Finish Cheesecake acrylic and added the same crackle but in Pearlescent Beige. 
I attached it to inside of the boat as shown. I painted the Tando Mini Owl and the stamped cat using Fresco paints in Brown Shed, Cheesecake and Guacamole. 
I clear embossed and attached to bottom of boat with sticky pads. 
And then did the same with the shells and starfish from the Crafty Individuals stamp set and glued these to the top. 
The words were pc generated.
